3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours dark brown, about the color of a brown ale. Nice off-white head about 1.5 inches. Fuzzy carbonation. Malty carmel aroma. No lacing down the glass. Sweet up front with carmelized sugar and chocolate flavor. Somewhat grainy, metalic finish with hop bitterness. A bit thin, but expected in a lager of 4.5% abv. A nice session beer.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
On tap at The Pivni Galerie, Prague, 500ml, filtered. Chestnutty colour with white head, a pretty looking beer. Thin beer, but with a certain smokiness and fruitiness, rather plummy. However there is a surose sweetness that dominates the beer and overall it is too thin to be overly interesting.
